“I want Lisa’s caramel swirled shag!”
HOW IT FLATTERS: Deepening hair’s base color helps new highlights pop, restoring a luminous shine to driedout locks, says celebrity colorist James Corbett. And a face-framing cut opens up the neck for a face-slimming effect. GET THE CUT: Ask your stylist for a modern shag with layers of varying lengths and brow-skimming bangs.
GET THE COLOR AT HOME: Start by darkening the base by two shades with a permanent dye (like Clairol Age Defy in #5-Medium Brown, $9, Walmart.com). Apply from roots to ends and let sit for 30 minutes; rinse and dry hair. Next, add subtle caramel highlights to the tips by applying color from a kit (like L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Glam Lights in #GL50, $10, Kmart.com) onto 1" sections of hair, starting 2 inches away from the scalp. Let sit 30 minutes; rinse. A timeand money-saving bonus: Highlighting just the ends of hair means touch-ups are only required every six months!
